    Definitely need to shrink down the fork a bit! Although: I noticed that while in a "good sized tree" (15 inches wide) sitting in the tree gave me the sensation my vision was "too...

    It's more than "perception." All other things being equal (including poundage), bows that feel easy to draw deliver less KE. It's a trade-off between speed (performance) and draw cycle. Speed bows...

    Based on specs alone, it looks like the X would be more forgiving. ~ But anything beyond a 33 inch ATA, I loose interest for a tree hunting bow. In terms of physical size, even the "R" is more...

    Can't wait to see the photos! I was pretty confident the bar could be moved back and still be effective.

    Monkey Tails = Great design. Easy on. Very durable.

    For bow hunting, do you really even need the fork at all? Maybe the seat is not wide enough to straddle a 8 to 10 inch diameter tree? I have to figure all this out in the next week or so.....
